Samsung announces Gear Fit aimed at fitness-minded individuals
This year at Mobile World Congress, Samsung announced not one or two, but three new smartwatches.
Joining the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo is the Samsung Gear Fit, designed for those “striving to live more fit and active lives” while still being stylish and connected. As with Samsung’s other new smartwatches, the Gear Fit also has no “Galaxy” moniker, running Samsung’s Tizen OS and not Android.
The Gear Fit, a fitness band with expanded features, offers a “vivid” 1.84-inch Curved Super AMOLED display, a 210mAh battery that gets three to four days of “typical usage” and up to five days of “low usage,” pedometer, exercise, heart rate, sleep, stopwatch and time functions and instant notifications from Galaxy smartphones such as incoming calls, emails, text messages, alarms, S-planner and third party apps.
It weighs just 27g, is dust and water resistant, plus has changeable straps available in black, orange and “mocha grey,” so it can match any “outfit or mood.”
The Gear Fit will be available globally in April.
